ACT Run for the Rainforest

By running this June 5K in Arlington, Va., you can help preserve the ecosystems of the Amazon. This run raises money for the Amazon Conservation Team or ACT, a nonprofit that takes a holistic approach to helping indigenous people in Brazil, Columbia and Suriname strengthen their traditional cultures, promote health and protect biodiversity.
